Movie Trailer: ‘Being Mary Jane’ (Starring Gabrielle Union)

Published: Thursday 21st Feb 2013 by TGJ

Check out the official trailer for BET‘s latest TV movie ‘Being Mary Jane’.

Starring Gabrielle Union, the show revolves around the character Mary Jane Paul – a successful TV news anchor who is still single and whose large extended family does not share her career ambitions.

Union described film saying:

“Being Mary Jane” is basically about a television host, who has her own show, and how she balances her life. Between wanting to talk about hard hitting news and other stories, she shuffles through her own personal morals. It’s about her trying to stand up for what she believes in but also keeping her ratings. She also struggles with the idea of being raised with the same morals, values and opportunities, throughout her family and being the only one to make it. How does that change the family dynamic? Her family comes from the upper-middle class, but she is the only one out of her siblings that is doing well. Her lack of a love life and the poor choices that she has made are also explored.”

Created and directed by the team behind ‘Sparkle’ (Mara Brock and Salim Akil), the hour-long production will serve as a backdoor pilot of sorts for an anticipated TV series. Watching this preview, we hope all plays out as planned.
